Wetsuit Repair 101


I noticed at the aquathon Thursday that there's a small tear in my wetsuit, so I went to Endurance House today and bought a wetsuit repair kit so I could patch it before tomorrow's triathlon.






Here's the tear. It looks bigger in the picture than it actually is.



Step 1: Clean the wound.




Step 2: Apply the Aquaseal...




Step 3: Let dry.

Easy enough. We'll see if it holds tomorrow morning.

While I was at Endurance House, I picked up some new goggles....



Those suckers have more suction than a Dyson. I'm confident they won't leak, but they might suck my eyeballs right out of my head...or give me brain damage...or both.

Every spring I go out and buy a plant that I kill by the end of summer. This is last year's plant...




Here's the plant I'm going to kill this year...

I am quite skilled in the art of plant murder myself. I call it the black thumb of death. Doesn't stop me from trying though- The trick is to buy plants that are perennials and practically take care of themselves.
Thanks for the repair lesson!

Hello, this AquaSure stuff. How strong does it leave the tear in comparison to when there was no tear? Does it bond the neoprene back together so it is as if no tear existed or does is simply stick the two edges together?

This seems to be a great site for Portable Pools, Plastic Pools, Full Wetsuits, Water Footwear, Queen Airbed With Pump.I had been relying on http://www.outdoorleisuredirect.co.uk earlier and they too offered good stuff.
